SPORTLIGHT

Dec. 1

1936 End Larry Kelley of Yale is named the Heisman Trophy winner.

1951 Arnold Showboat Boykin of Mississippi scores seven touchdowns in a 49-7 rout of Mississippi State.

1959 Louisiana State halfback Billy Cannon is named the Heisman Trophy winner.

1973 Jack Nicklaus wins the Disney World Open to become the first professional golfer to earn $2 million in career earnings.

1980 South Carolina running back George Rogers is named the Heisman Trophy winner.

1984 Greg Page knocks out South Africa s Gerrie Coetzee in the eighth round in Sun City, Bophuthatswana to win the WBA heavyweight title.

1984 Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie is named the 50th Heisman Trophy winner.

1990 Ty Detmer of Brigham Young wins the Heisman Trophy. Detmer, who had set or tied 25 NCAA passing and total offense records, becomes the first BYU winner and third consecutive junior winner.

1991 France wins the Davis Cup for the first time in 59 years behind Guy Forget s four-set victory over Pete Sampras of the United States giving France an insurmountable 3-1 lead.

1992 Washington guard Michael Adams sets a professional record for career 3-point baskets with his 795th in the Bullets 119-106 victory over San Antonio. Louie Dampier had 794 3-point goals for Kentucky of the ABA and San Antonio of the NBA from 1967-79.

2000 Indiana holds Vancouver scoreless in overtime for a 86-76 victory. It s the eighth time in NBA history that a team fails to score in an overtime period.

2001 North Texas (5-6) loses to Troy State 18-16 to become the third team to go to a bowl with a losing record. The Mean Green, bound for the inaugural New Orleans Bowl as the Sun Belt Conference champion, join SMU (4-6 in 1963) and William & Mary (5-6 in 1970) as the only teams to play in a bowl game with a losing record.

2003 Sylvester Croom becomes the first black head football coach in Southeastern Conference history, accepting an offer to take over troubled Mississippi State.

2004 McKendree College coach Harry Statham tops Dean Smith with his 880th career victory, an 83-72 win over Maryville. Smith, with 879 wins, still holds the NCAA record for career victories because all of Statham s wins are at the NAIA level.

2007 Hawaii remains the nation s only undefeated major college team with a 35-28 come-from-behind victory over Washington. Colt Brennan of Hawaii completes 42-of-50 passes for 442 yards and five TDs. Brennan, with 4,174 yards, breaks 4,000 yards passing in each of his three seasons at Hawaii.
